Very small bedrooms.

The bedrooms are, reportedly, very small indeed, particularly single rooms. A number of guests also commented on the very loud floorboards in the bedrooms, resulting in being woken up during the night.


Poor facilities.

Desperately needs renovating.

The majority of guests comment on the fact that the hotel is in need of renovation. There are multiple reviews of tired interiors, with the carpets in communal areas not laid properly. The showers in certain rooms are reportedly weak and difficult to oper
